    Bomb tutor blows up his students by accident

    11/02/2014

    An instructor teaching his militant recruits how to make car bombs accidentally set off explosives in his demonstration on Monday (local time), killing 21 of them in a huge blast that alerted authorities to the existence of the rural training camp in an orchard north of Baghdad.

    Nearly two dozen people were arrested, including wounded insurgents trying to hobble away from the scene.

    The fatal goof by the al Qaeda breakaway group that dominates the Sunni insurgency in Iraq happened on the same day that the speaker of the Iraqi parliament, a prominent Sunni whom the militants consider a traitor, escaped unhurt from a roadside bomb attack on his motorcade in the northern city of Mosul.

    Nevertheless, the events underscored the determination of the insurgents to rebuild and regain the strength they enjoyed in Iraq at the height of the war until US-backed Sunni tribesmen turned against them. The militants are currently battling for control of mainly Sunni areas of western Iraq in a key test of the Shiite-led government's ability to maintain security more than two years after the withdrawal of US troops.

    While the Iraqi army has been attacking insurgent training camps in the vast desert of western Anbar province near the Syrian border, it is unusual to find such a camp in the center of the country, just 95 kilometres (60 miles) north of the capital.

    The discovery shows that "the terrorist groups have made a strong comeback in Iraq and that the security problems are far from over, and things are heading from bad to worse", said Hamid al-Mutlaq, a member of the parliament's security and defence committee.

    The militants belonged to a network now known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an extremist group that recently broke with al Qaeda. The ISIL, emboldened by fellow fighters' gains in the Syrian civil war, has tried to position itself as the champion of Iraqi Sunnis angry at the government over what they see as efforts to marginalise them.

    Car bombs are one of the deadliest weapons used by this group, with coordinated waves of explosions regularly leaving scores dead in Baghdad and elsewhere across the country. The bombs are sometimes assembled in farm compounds where militants can gather without being spotted, or in car workshops in industrial areas.

    The explosion Monday took place at a camp tucked away in an orchard in the village of al-Jalam, a farming area that has been a stronghold of al Qaeda close to the Sunni city of Samarra. According to a police officer, an army official and a hospital official, all of whom spoke on condition of anonymity for security reasons, the events unfolded as follows.

    The militants were attending a lesson on making car bombs and explosive belts when a glitch set off one of the devices during the car bomb part of the demonstration. Security forces rushed to the area after hearing the thunderous blast and arrested 12 wounded militants along with another 10 trying to flee.

    Authorities searched two houses and a garage in the orchard, finding seven car bombs as well as several explosive belts and roadside bombs. The cars did not have license plates. Bomb experts then started the work of defusing the devices.

    Always good news when a bomb maker blows himself up. Even better news when he takes his students out with him.

    The gutless water carriers at the Daily Mail totally ignored this story, and ran with one of a teargas cannister going off in an Israeli military truck.

    It is fascinating how the original Assassins were convinced of this.

    A man would be buried up to his neck with his head covered in blood to give the impression he had been decapitated. He would then be ordered, under threat of death, to tell the would-be assassins of the wonderful afterlife that awaited them.

    He would, of course, be decapitated shortly afterwards, and his head placed on a pike, to reinforce the deception.

    Ah the good old days.

    Now they need to replace the dead instructor,where do they go to find a replacement.
    Hard to believe they will find any more volunteers,but I suspect the next bunch of dumbos will be lining up.

    How can this not be good news.
    Let's have plenty more of it.

    Remember that old StarTrek joke.

    This Muslim says to an American "I can't understand this Startrek series"
    "Whys that" says the Yank
    "Well " says the Muslim " You have Checkov who is Russian, Scotty from Scotland, Spock from Vulcan, there is a Korean and a a load of Englist and Americans, plus other races. Can you explain why there is no Muslims"

    "You just don't get it" says the Yank "It's set in the future"

    Boom Boom.

    Bomb making school - those people are savages. You won't read a story like that coming out of a real county with normal citizens. Same with beheadings and stoning and gang rapes as criminal punishments.
